I believe V5R4 has added some implicit type conversions into SQL, including character representation of numeric variables.

Vern cool!

Tim,

Is that number truly numeric? I did create a test file and used that. And
the statement worked. Frankly I was a tad surprised that I could substr a
numeric

You do realize that
123456
12345678
123457
Will all appear as CORP 12345. But a plain 1234 will appear as a new CORP

If that's what you wanted then that's pretty cool.
